Public Domain: What's It All About?

What is Public Domain?

'Works that are freely available for commercial or public use without restriction - not protected by copyright restrictions.'

    (US Patent and Trademark Office)

    'The public domain consists of all works that never had copyright protection and works that no longer have copyright protection. The public domain also includes most works created by the United States government. All works in the public domain are free for the public to use. Works published in the United States prior to 1923 are in the public domain.'

    (Purdue University)

    Public domain images are free for you to use, modify and even sell without giving credit.


    How is Public Domain Determined?

    As a general rule, most works enter the public domain because of old age. This includes any work published in the United States before 1923.

    Another large block of works are in the public domain because they were published before 1964 and copyright was not renewed. (Renewal was a requirement for works published before 1978.)

    A smaller group of works fell into the public domain because they were published without copyright notice (copyright notice was necessary for works published in the United States before March 1, 1989.) 

    Some works are in the public domain because the owner has indicated a desire to give them to the public without copyright protection.

    (from Stanford University Library)
